Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

From the mission of Davies-Black Publishing staff and authors—affecting change at work, with others, and in the world—to a single employee mentoring a coworker or organizing a blood drive, there are hundreds of ways to make a difference in process and outcomes, with tasks or people. And while we all are hardwired to seek purpose and happiness, what brings meaning to one person vs. another has remained a mystery.

Making a Difference by Being Yourself deconstructs the puzzle by zeroing in on how our unique personality type frames what “making a difference” means and drives the actions we take to leave our mark on the people and organizations we care about. Building on the powerful fundamentals of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment, a dynamic framework identifies four key types—Stabilizers, Harmonizers, Catalysts, and Visionaries—and combines with research and stories from over 500 people to chart a journey of selfdiscovery and beyond. With dozens of exercises, assessment tools, and examples, Making a Difference by Being Yourself delivers a complete toolkit to take personal insight and awareness to the next level: to live life consciously and exploit our strengths and talents in ways that make a meaningful difference.
